Join the Campaign to Expand Rent Control

The Costa-Hawkins Rental Housing Act prevents cities and counties from applying rent control to apartments built after 1995 or to single-family rental units and condos. It also allows landlords to raise the rent as much as they want when a unit becomes vacant. In order to have strong rent control laws and stem the tide of displacement in California, we need to repeal this law and give local governments the power to combat the housing affordability crisis.

The Affordable Housing Act would do just that, ensuring the option for repeal should the Democratic-controlled legislature fail to pass Assembly Bill 1506 to repeal Costa-Hawkins and provide relief to the state’s millions of renters.
